six3twelve: Donna and Mike and Their Brewery Wedding

by ten7sixblog

We met these two just before Christmas last year. When we were getting ready to go meet them for the first time, Donna said in her email, “don’t worry, you’ll be able to find us, we’ll be the redheads with the baby.” Sure enough, we had no trouble spotting them. As we met with them and started to hear some of the details of their wedding, we were excited. From the handmade details, the cool colors, the games instead of typical reception dancing and the overall brewery and beer theme, we were stoked. To find the ideal location, Donna and Mike did their homework regarding breweries; they scouted nearly every brewery location in Colorado looking for the perfect venue for their nuptials. Rough job, right? Their search landed them in Aurora at Dry Dock Brewing Company. Out of all of locations, this was the place that took the cake.

To start the day, I (Abbi) met Donna and her Bridesmaids at the hotel where they were getting ready.

While I was there, my better half was over with the guys at the brewery while they prepared (aka, drank beer and had a good time) and to get some of the detail shots before the whole to-do got started.

After the ceremony, Donna and Mike thanked their guests and did the first pour from their special wedding day brew.

After handing out a few drinks and insisting that their guests eat and drink in their absence, we made our way to a nearby park for formal shots.

And that was that! Now it was time to head to the reception to drink beer, eat and play a bunch of fun games.
